CEPR 165 SU01: Printmaking Techniques
This course introduces you to the basics of printmaking through three different techniques: intaglio, lithography, and Japanese woodblock. You will start with intaglio as you learn to work with drypoint on plexiglass. In the lithography section you will draw on polymer sheets, then print your image using a litho press. You will complete your introduction with Japanese style woodblock using hand rubbing as you explore relief printing. Discussion and historical review will supplement hands-on work. On completion, you will have a broad knowledge of printmaking and three sets of prints.
